Gunrunner: GOP to drop Fast and Furious investigation for fear of Holder playing the race card?
If this report is true than it is truly a sad day for the families of Brian Terry, Jaime Zapata, countless families of murdered Mexican nationals, justice seeking Americans, accountability in government, and for law and order. If the story is true John Boehner is prepared to drop the Fast and Furious investigation and stop contempt hearings against Eric Holder because he is afraid he will play the race card. John Boehner apparently feels as if the Republicans will face a lesser political hit for dropping the investigation than they will if they move forward and Eric Holder plays the race card.
they (the GOP leadership) don’t think that they will suffer for [that] failure to follow through. They’re scared of Holder’s race card. . . they’re scared of Trayvon. They think if they let Issa fail, that it will only be a story in the blogosphere for a day . . . that they can weather it.
If this is true–and it is unconfirmed–it appears as if Boehner is making a decision based on politics instead of basing his decision on the facts uncovered in the investigation or doing what is right, and it is a shame that Darrell Issa and Charles Grassley have been sold down the river so that John Boehner can do what he thinks is more politically expedient.
I have nothing else to add to this story at this time other than to state I am totally disgusted with the Republican leadership, and if they are all voted out in November they deserve it for they have let the American people down because they don’t have the courage to do what is right. Why should we trust them any more than Barack Obama to make the tough decisions moving forward if they are to look at everything through a political prism before making a decision? That is how we got into this mess in the first place and if politics trumps everything else when making a decision we have already lost this country.
